When you Google someone from within the EU, you no longer see what the search giant thinks is the most important and relevant information about an individual. You see the most important information the target of your search is not trying to hide.

Stark evidence of this fact, the result of a European court ruling that individuals had the right to remove material about themselves from search engine results, arrived in the Guardian's inbox this morning, in the form of an automated notification that six Guardian articles have been scrubbed from search results.

And then the EU wonders why support for even more 'Europe' is at an all-time low.

With what resources is Google using to deliberately mislead the public about the details of some, otherwise unimportant, random person whose name is entered into a search field?

Since it is a billionary company, I'm sure it got enough resources.
